We occasionally get asked in the travel forums about overnight parking. It is possible to park overnight in Foss Islands Road and Grimson Bar park and ride site.
Mini bus and mobile home parking is only recommended at these 24 hour sites. 2009 charges are up to 2 hours £3.30, 2 to 5 hours £5.00 , 18.00 to 24.00 £2.00 and all day £8.00. There is no charge 24.00 to 08.00.
These are pay and display car parks where you buy a parking ticket from a machine so make sure you have change.
My favourite shop is called...
My favourite shop is called Lush. They sell wonderful soaps and bath-time goodies, body lotions etc. It might not sound very exciting but you can smell the place from a hundred metres away! It’s not expensive, but easy to come out having spent £30! Treat yourself! The chain has an internet site www.lush.co.uk and can supply to most of Europe.

take a walk around the walls. At various points on a wall walk you will come to a gate. These usually consist of defensive towers either side of an arched gateway. The gates are called Bars (and streets are called Gates, got that?) So this picture is of Mickelgate Bar.
A Cyclists Paradise
York has recently been designated a cycle city and has recently had its already great cycle network improved further. There are so many traffic free paths through the city and out into the North Yorkshire countryside and the Vale of York, it is an easier and quicker way of getting round than bus or car in the congested city centre!
Many places to park on Parliament Street and the Station, but dont forget your lock!!!
Just breezed in for a nosy, we were just walking past the place and popped in for a look. It has a lovely Georgian frontage with very cosy sitting rooms with fireplaces that I'm sure will roar in the winter, and a very impressive central stair case.
